I’m SO FREAKING EXCITED that the Chris4Life celebrity dating auction is THIS FRIDAY and the event has been featured in both UsWeekly and People Magazine!
Thank you SO much to everyone that has already purchased a ticket, or donated. If you’re wanting to still attend you can buy tickets now or at the door. Price is $50 and goes up to $65 the day of the event.
All press, and BS aside though, this event really means a lot to ALL of the people involved. All of the chairs have been effected in one way or another by colon cancer, and having so much support has been truly moving.
This is huge for me on a personal level, so seriously, thank you thank you thank you for all the donations and to those that I shall see at the event.
Plus, dudes, you get to date some of the Bachelors and Bachelorettes from the popular show!!

About: The highly anticipated second annual event will feature a variety of “star power” from TV personalities, The Bachelor series reality stars, and Hollywood notables – all ready to show their love for their “bottoms” to help raise money for colon cancer patients. Event attendees will have fun competitively bidding on celebrities for a chance to have a special outing with his or her favorite star (i.e. lunch, dinner, shopping trips, wine tours, excursions, etc). The idea for this event came from a brainstorming discussion last year between the Executive Director for Chris4Life Michael Sapienza and Michelle Money, a former finalist in ABC’s The Bachelor Pad Season 2 who lost her father to colon cancer.
